With all the blog awards going on right now, I propose another. The J. Lo Media Slut Award. Who should be on the list?
Glenn Reynolds - For simultaneously slamming mainstream media, while never rejecting an offer to show up on CNN. "Just make sure you give me more air time than Wonkette."
Amber Frey - "No, I'm the victim. Not the murdered wife and baby. Look at me. Sad eyes. Sad eyes. Buy my book."
Those two would top my list. Who else should appear?
Well, me of course. I talked to a Times reporter about mommy blogs the other day. "11D is a mommy blog?" It is if you're going to put me the Style Section, baby!
The interview went okay. I'm getting better at this interview thing. I didn't give him a twenty minutes soliloquy on de Tocqueville. But I couldn't help e-mailing him later with more points. We bloggers like to control our image, and it's difficult to hand over the reins to an outsider.
The reporter seems like a good guy and unlikely to slam the mommies, which is good.
It is officially the weekend, there's a chilly Saranac waiting for me, and blogging must cease. I'll tell you more next week.
